We are pleased to announce that out of more than 400 golf courses in South Carolina, Callawassie Island has been named as one of the top 50 golf courses for 2014 by the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel!
A big congratulations goes to Billy Bagwell and Ryan Watson along with their superb staff, who work to keep the course at this award-winning level every day. A big thank you goes out to our membership as well for patience and cooperation when needing to care for the course.
For a little background, rating is determined by the following criteria:
- Routing – How the course flows from hole to hole in harmony with existing topography
- Variety – Degree to which the course demands a full range of shot requirements
- Strategy – How design features test course management
- Equity – The course’s capacity to reward good shots and penalize poor ones
- Memorability – The distinctiveness of the golf course and its individual holes
- Aesthetics – The degree to which scenery and surrounds lend to the enjoyment
- Experience – Incorporates all elements of the course: practice areas, clubhouse and more
Way to go Callawassie Island, it is a recognition well deserved and a long-time coming!
